Mathematical Provocations

On one day of November,

I brought out some gems and started to sorting colour.

The children were curious and offered to help and I welcomed them.

I used a few glass jars to sort some gems.
Mikayla seems to love to hear the sound when the gems were dropped into the jars.

Caoileann said that she enjoys putting the gems on the pattern,
After that I drew some patterns on paper.

I started to make patterns with gems.

" Can I help you ?" Mikayla asked me, she slowly started to make an alternating colour pattern with the gems. " Green and next is mmmmm..." I know the next is blue! "

And in the afternoon, Royson took an interest in the gems and showed a great deal of focus on the colour and shapes.

These math activities allow the children to explore in open-ended ways. They show creativity and is a much better way for children to learn than worksheets.

I love to watch our children when they are creating. They inspire one another with their beautiful ideas.
